Roly Keating, Chief Executive of the British Library said: “The British Library holds a fascinating archive of some 200,000 hours of radio dating from the early 1930s up to the present day, used by historians, academics and the creative industries to offer a unique, living portrait of what the nation is talking about – and what they listened to – at any given point in time. We are delighted to be hosting Radio Festival 2015 at the British Library, and look forward to celebrating this vibrant part of the nation’s creative heritage.”
